Shan Mullin ’56 recognized as Distinguished FIJI in 2009

Shan Mullin ’56 is a man who is dear to our fraternity. A member of the Class of ’56, he graduated with a degree in Business and followed with a degree from the University of Washington School of Law in ’58.

Brother Mullin is a partner with the law firm of Perkins Coie in Seattle where he specializes in the firm’s international business practice. He has represented clients in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Russia, the Far East, Australia, Latin America, and Canada…in addition to the USA. In 2004, he received the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Washington Law School. His community leadership includes a focus on health services and cancer research. He is a board member and past chairman of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, is vice-chairman of U.W. Medicine, and serves on the board and is past chair of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. In 2009, he was selected Nonprofit Director of the Year by the National Associations of Corporate Directors. (as written in the Spring 2010 magazine – The PHI GAMMA DELTA)

From my point of view Shan is steady as a rock, and he is a caring and sincere individual. He is a true friend and a great fraternity brother. And it is extra-ordinary fraternity member like Shan who deserves to be recognized by our fraternity as a Distinguished FIJI.

Shan Mullin ’56 formally received his Distinguished Fiji Award from the Executive Director of the national fraternity, Bill Martin at the 2010 Desert FIJI Luncheon in Southern California.

2010 October Luncheon – Jon Runstad ’64 and Ron Crockett ’61


Jon Runstad ’64 and Ron Crockett ’61 shared their involvement and views on the remodel of the Husky Stadium. We learned that much of the Husky Stadium is coming down and we saw sketches and 360 degree perspectives on video showing the planned replacements for the south side, the west horseshoe and the water end of the field. Jon recapped the process followed by WrightRunstad to assemble a team. The team confirmed Jon’s suspicions that the project could be accomplished for a sharply lower budget than the original contractor’s submission of the 2009 construction budget. The net of it, WrightRunstad is offering more building for less money – who could be unhappy? It was a great insider view of this major upgrading of the UW athletic facilities.

Pig Dinner 2009

On the evening of Friday November 20, 2009 Seattle area graduates of Phi Gamma Delta gathered for the annual PIG Dinner organized by the Seattle Graduate Chapter. It was the last such FIJI gathering in the University of Washington HUB (Husky Union Building) which was scheduled for a major remodeling project to run through 2010 and 2011. The photo show includes crowd shots as well as memorable points in the program. The MC for the evening was Rob Outcalt ’86. Scholarships were announced for the fortunate undergraduates, and the 50 year class of 1959 was honored as newly declared Golden Owls. The 25th year class of 1984 was honored as newly declared Silver Owls. And the Rogge Award for Loyalty was given to two very deserving graduates — Paul Capeloto ’79 and Mark Capeloto ’77.

Hope you enjoy the photo show.
